1996 ZJ

I retired the ZJ in 2017 when I bought the XK. I've had her since September of 1999. In May of 2020, she was near totaled, but was rebuilt. I put over 200,000 miles on her between 1999 and 2017. In 2006 I brought my first daughter home in it, and in 2008 I did the same for my second. She sat in a storage unit for most of 2018 and 2019 and I brought her home when I bought my house in September of 2019. in May, she was on the driveway under a cover when straight line winds came and knocked down a tree in my back yard. The top part of the tree came down on it, but the damage was minimal. I did have to get a new windshield. I'll get a new hood and fender and let a body shop bang our the rest. It's time to get her back on the road.

Just this week my RockAuto order showed up with:

- Pads and rotors
- Shocks
- Tie rod ends
- Ball joints
- Plugs and wires
- Upper and lower radiator hoses
- Thermostat

Pics, in order: Day I got her, accident damage, after I cut away the tree, in the driveway today:
